Former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is eclipsing everyone who works for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to a new report.
Justin Caporale, who helps lead the advance team for the former president, has announced that anyone who has recently attended a DeSantis book tour will be considered “persona non grata,” RealClearPolitics reported Friday.
A “top Trump ally,” meanwhile, said the ban would apply to more than just junior aides setting up folding chairs and hanging banners at DeSantis events.

“It’s a time of choice,” the source reportedly said. “If you’re working for Ron DeSantis’ presidential nomination, you’re not going to be working for the Trump campaign or in the Trump White House.”
The reported threat comes amid an escalating war of words between Trump, who has announced a 2024 presidential campaign, and DeSantis, who has not announced a White House bid but is still widely regarded as Trump’s main rival in the Republican primary.
For several days, Trump has increasingly attacked DeSantis, perhaps most vehemently in a statement this week in which he called the governor “average” and better at public relations than governing.

For his part, DeSantis has begun to fight back. In a new interview with journalist Piers Morgan this week, DeSantis has attacked Trump for his style, character and leadership, saying there is “no daily drama” in the governor’s office.
The Florida governor also drew a clear contrast with Trump when it came to the COVID pandemic, saying he had Dr. Anthony Fauci “Fired” if he had been President at the time.
When asked in a separate interview Thursday if he would join a potential ticket as Trump’s running mate, DeSantis replied, “I think I’m probably more of an executive… We can make things happen, and I think that’s likely.” what I am best suited for.”
